treasure hunts.

Our family began geocaching 4 years ago
and it’s something we randomly do together as a family.
This weekend we introduced Jonah’s friend, Jun, to geocaching,
I think he had fun!

We found 3 on the way home from church!

We use an app on our iPhones to get the coordinates, a map and clues to help us drive around and find the hidden “treasures” right here in our town- some are just minutes from our house. When you find the treasures, you take something from the container and then you leave something. Some are big treasures and some are small trinkets or toys, but the fun is in the hunt, and then you sign the log inside with your geocache name to show you found it.

Here is the app we use:

They all are over the world, so everyone can play.

We are planning to leave a few geocaches soon and use the app to watch and see who finds it,
so much fun!

Who else likes to geocache?

    We geocache under the name doingitoldschool. Our first few geocaches were done without a gps, or phone, we did it old school, looking at the start on the map, and trying to find it. We were soon hooked. That was 2007.

    We love it! We have them all over, too, where we live. We live across the street from a big nature park, so we like to “hunt” them down out there. :)
